Mumbo Island Camp is named for the pristine, practically
deserted tropical island on which it is built. The crystal-clear,
warm waters of Lake Malawi National Park are the first in the world
set aside for the protection of freshwater fish. With over 2000
species present, this region of Lake Malawi is often considered the
best freshwater diving and snorkelling location on the planet.
Unlike most island destinations in the region, Mumbo Island has
never been populated by humans and is still in its natural state.
This, together with the focus on non-motorised water sports, makes
Mumbo Island Camp ideal for the active outdoors enthusiast.
Accommodation at the intimate Mumbo Island Camp comprises
tastefully furnished, comfortable tents with hot bucket showers and
'eco-loos'. With an exclusive limit of only 14 guests at a time,
Mumbo Island Camp is perched on rocks high above the water -
blending with the environment perfectly to create a place of rustic
charm and minimal impact. Tucked into the lush foliage, each tent
is fully furnished with its own shaded view-deck and hammock. Mumbo
Island Camp adheres to strict principles of eco-architecture, so
the dining area, bar and water sport gazebo, are all hand built
from timber, thatch and canvas.
